Atlanta Police and federal agents are working to determine the origins of a drug lab in the Home Park neighborhood of Midtown.
Officers were first called to the vacant house near the corner of 10th Street and Curran Street after someone reported the front and back doors were open.
The area, which is a couple of blocks from the northwest edge of the Georgia Tech campus, was cordoned off as DEA agents in haz mat suits removed containers of chemicals from the home.
After nearly five hours of work at the scene, authorities revealed they had stumbled on a full blown lab that had been used to manufacture ecstasy .
No arrests have been made.
